When adding an element, say a door, to something like a wall, if there is a void within the door and everything is set properly to cut out a section of the wall, what is the resultant material colour that you see at the cut?
I've been trying this out and in the Realistic display mode, when I have a door with a recess profile around the frame, in brick I see the brick colour, but in plaster I see a grey which isn't the same as the default plaster colour?
The recess is 12mm into 12.5mm plaster.
Door family object also attached.
Not a major issue but I'm trying to learn Revit, and the naysayers in the office are adept at point out every single flaw they can find, to say the nitpicking I can expect on things like this (probably one reason why the last attempy at Revit 7 years ago failed so spectacularly) is driving me slightly nuts would be an understatement!
If you cut the Wall with a Void element , being it imported from a family or even created using Component>Model in Place>Walls>Void Element (extrusion or sweep, etc) the material that appears in the section cut will be the Default Wall material . So, if you want that the color to be that of plaster , change the color of the default wall to be the same of that of plaster...
But if you want to solve it more direct select the wall and from Modify/Walls>Create Parts. With Parts activated everuthing looks OK....
In addition to those from above , you have to take in consideration that only in Consistent Color Visual Style the shadows do not appear at all . In Shaded and Realistic even with shadow off the own shadow of the object appears (see Images 249 and 250 ...)
